Where There Is A Will There Is A Way!





Category: TREATMENT OF OTHER FEVERS
Source: Hydriatic Treatment Of Scarlet Fever In Its Different Forms

I have been frequently compelled to resort to these milder applications,
when there were no bathing utensils in families or boarding-houses, or
no servants to carry the water for a bath; and they have always
answered very well. In cases where a sitz-bath or a half-bath is
indispensable, to save the life of a patient, you will find the means of
procuring bathing utensils and the necessary quantity of water.

_Where there is a will, there is a way!_--I am sure that when once your
mind is made up to use the treatment, it will not be difficult for you
to find the means for it. There is always water, and there are always
hands enough, where there is _resolution_. And who would mind a little
trouble, when he can save a fellow creature's, perhaps a darling child's
life and health? As for the rest, the few days' trouble, which the
hydriatic mode of treatment gives, is largely recompensed by the much
shorter duration of the disease, and by the immediate relief the patient
derives from almost every application of water.

I have generally found that those parents who had confidence in the
treatment, had also the courage to resort to it. _Confidence and
courage_ create _resolution_, and when once you have begun to treat your
patient, you will be sure to persevere. _Il n'y a que le premier pas qui
coute_, as the French say: only the first step is difficult.
